So good news. We are WELL on our way to meeting our $2,500 goal for fundraising. We already have over $1000 collected and we're planning on having a fundraising dinner next week.
This has been so much fun.
I really mean that. It's been fun to see my coworkers just take this whole fundraising thing to the next level. In FACT 4 other men offered to shave their heads as well! So it's on a bit of a graduated scale. If we raised $500 by last Friday, my friend Warren would shave his head. If we raise $1000 by this Friday, 2 more guys lose their hair. So you get the idea of how this works. In the end, it'll be 5 bald men... and EVERY SINGLE TIME I think about that, I laugh.
And it's STILL growing. So now our communications manager is contacting local press to come be apart of it. For two reasons, first to get more publicity for Hope Lodge. And second, so we have loads of video and photos of the baldness :)
Thus, my old boss decided that maybe we should get some shirts made up for the baldies. You know, since they'll be on TV and all. My coworker Sarah (the brains behind the operation) and I were charged with coming up with some great slogan for the T-shirts.
Not being terribly inventive right now, I went onto the internet to see what I could find. And boy oh boy, there were some GREAT ones. And then there were some even BETTER ones that were wildly inappropriate.
Here are some examples of the ones we thought were both appropriate and entertaining:
1. Don't let Breast Cancer steal second base!
2. Bald... it's the new blonde.
3. I'm having a NO HAIR day.
4. I lost my hair, not my sense of humor.
5. Does this shirt make my head look bald?
Some that were not so appropriate, yet very entertaining:
1. Save a life, grope your wife.
2. F*ck cancer!
3. Chemo: about as cool as a honeymoon handjob.
And ones that I just find entertaining for myself:
1. I lost my boobs... I think I put them in my purse somewhere.
2. Looking for an assman.
3. I have chemobrain, what's your excuse?
4. I pay my oncologist BIG BUCKS for this hairstyle!
5. The chemo made me do it!
6. Of COURSE they're fake... the real ones tried to kill me!
I'm sure not all of these makes sense to y'all, especially considering I haven't yet touched on topics like chemobrain (chemo makes you dumb... D-U-M).
We're not quite sold on ANY of the sayings above for our Cancer Boyz, so if you come up with any others that are funny, please feel free to post them here.
On another note, remember when I asked for funny hat suggestions? Well someone put a link to THIS in my comments section. Yes. It's a knit cap that looks like a BOOB. Do you think that'd be inappropriate as a gift for all the guys shaving their heads? :)
